The dramatic announcement of Prime Minister Narendra Modi about the launching of Anti-Satellite Missile was a calculated attempt to hoodwink the whole nation.
In fact this technology was developed by the DRDO nine years ago. The Director General of DRDO while attending the 97th Indian Science Congress held at Trivandrum in 2010 announced the successful test of ASAT.
The Prime Minister mischievously utilized the achievement of our scientists for narrow political interests. It is unbecoming of a Prime Minister to announce such scientific achievement to the nation. The Central government and the BJP are misusing the military movements including surgical strike for electoral benefits, which is highly condemnable.
The All India Forward Bloc place on record it's strong protest on the politicisation of military and scientific power of the nation.
